This essay models pathways for discipline faculty to incorporate Welty’s work into English classes that target secondary education majors, a significant population in most English departments at accredited teacher training universities. Such a move, it contends, helps foster more inclusion of her work in high school curricula by eliminating barriers for pre-service teachers, the impact of which has the potential to increase the critical literacy of adolescents who will one day populate collegiate classrooms. It lays bare targeted inquiry-based learning strategies utilized by the author with The Wide Net and Other Stories (1943), along with avenues for furthering teacher fluency by placing The Golden Apples (1949) at the heart of a robust pedagogy project, the benefits of which also positively impact traditional English majors who often go on to teach adolescents in first-year writing classes in graduate school.

Keywords:   secondary education majors, high school curricula, pre-service teachers, inquiry-based learning, pedagogy project
